COVID Cases In China Have Increased To 2,157 From 2,000 The Previous Day

(CTN NEWS) – SHANGHA – The National Health Commission said on Friday that China reported 2,157 new symptomatic COVID-19 infections on December 15, up from 2,000 the day before.

China reported 2,091 new local symptomatic cases, up from 1,944 a day earlier, after excluding imported illnesses.

China ceased reporting asymptomatic cases as of Wednesday, citing a paucity of testing among those who had no symptoms, which made it challenging to determine the total number of cases accurately.

In comparison to the previous day, there were no new fatalities, keeping the total number of fatalities at 5,235.

374,075 cases with symptoms had been confirmed in mainland China as of December 15.

Following the recent relaxation of zero-COVID standards, official statistics are no longer a credible indicator because fewer tests are being conducted nationwide.
